Sleek, modern design characterizes the decor at Pixie Salon. An entryway beckons with cool-mint walls, a crisp-white couch, and rounded chairs, and a quote on the wall gently inspires readers to dance in the rain. This stylish independent streak is at the heart of the salon’s mission to be a creative, open environment. Pixie Salon’s stylists draw on that artistic spirit to meet the needs of their clients, crafting new haircuts, colors, and foil sculptures with ease.
Most days upon leaving class at the International School of Skin and Nailcare, Kristen Axton headed straight to her job at Kiehl's. This combination of formal training and on-the-job experience helped develop her aesthetic expertise, which she further refined while working at several med spas throughout Atlanta. Today, as owner of Kristen's Skin Care & Massage, she commands a team of massage therapists and aestheticians dedicated to beautifying and de-stressing clients. Their signature Atlanta facial restores vim and vigor to lagging faces with a multi-step regimen that includes peels derived from herbal enzymes or therapeutic acids. Aestheticians also slough away dead skin cells with microdermabrasion sessions designed to lessen scarring from acne, sun damage, and general wear and tear. Elsewhere in the shop, massage therapists unravel kinked muscles with techniques borrowed from Swedish and neuromuscular specialties.
Renata Nall's 19-year journey through the world of aesthetics saw her working alongside plastic surgeons and dermatologists before she split off 4 years ago to open her own Anti-Aging Skin Studio. Since then, Renata has honed a repertoire of treatments to remedy the internal and external effects of aging. Her techniques smooth the skin, extract bodily toxins, and melt down AARP cards into youthful friendship bracelets. Reflective of Renata's medical background, products from PCA Skin dab epidermises with elixirs created under the guidance of physicians.

For the staff at Jolie Beauty Spa and Nails, a spa isn't just about escaping stress; it should also be a sanctuary from the world's ubiquitous toxins. Inside the 98% chemical-free facility, clients bask in botanical ingredients such as green coffee extract, paraffin wax, aromatherapy oils, and fairy kiss residue. But before the team performs any of their signature spa services, they consult with each client to help tailor their sessions to address their needs.
